. also pulitzer prize winning historian jon meacham. we have three weeks to go until election day. and tonight, obviously, is the big debate. it's going to be a town hall-style debate. and some new polls are out. let's take a look at, again, we've got a shift possibly in the electoral map. this morning, a new "usa today" gallup poll shows growing momentum for mitt romney in the key battleground states, including ohio, florida, and virginia. the poll has romney pulling ahead by four points among likely voters. 50% to 46%. this is obviously a big shift. it's only one poll. but perhaps the bigger take away from this poll and some others is how the candidates are ranking among likely woman voters in those battleground states. we've heard an awful lot about the gender gap since the primary season, but among likely female voters in swing states, mitt romney's pulling almost even with the president. 48% to 49%, among male voters in the swing states, romney has an eight-point lead over the president. mark, let's start with you. you're reporting right now that senior democratic officials a
targeted. >> bill: when jon stewart begins mocking you liberal america takes notice. will the president's foreign policy bungles influence the upcoming vote? we'll have a special report. >> i find such a champion in president obama and which is why i passionately support him specifically because i'm a woman. >> bill: will the ladies put the president over the top on election day? that's what mr. obama is hoping. we'll have analysis. >> holding a book and trying to get my reading glasses to work. >> bill: we might be able to hire people to do that for you. shall i turn the page? "the factor" is all over the place today shaking things up on tv and radio. we'll show you how it went. >> that epic debate, the one with you and jon stewart, what are you doing to prepare? >> taking a nap. >> bill: caution. you are about to enter the no spin zone. "the factor" begins right now. hi. i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight's. is the president's foreign policy falling apart? that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. jon stewart now mocking president obama over the libyan
about it. >> he told jon stewart that every piece of information that his administration got tied to the terror attack on the consulate attack in benghazi was laid out to paint a picture of what happened . despite his administration confusing the response, the president was never confused about the fact four americans were killed and the fact that terrorist struck the consulate at all was not optmal. >> i would say you would admit it was not the optmalresponse as far as all of us being on the same page. >> here's what i would say. four americans get killed it is not optmaland we'll fix it. >> fox news said the administration knew within 24 hours that the raid was a terrorist attack and senator john mccain wants to know why if the president knew americans had been murdered by terrorist, he went on in mccain's words in every show in america to say they died in a spontanous administration . he took issue with the way the president described it on a comedy show. >> even from someone like the president who is never known what the tragedies are about and service and sacrifice that peopl
is democrat jon tester. and he says he's not happy about all this outside money. >> we're going to see a ton of money spent in montana. we're seeing money earlier, more of it, and with more regularity. and i think we're in the process right now of building a campaign infrastructure that's going to be very difficult to pull down as time goes on. it's getting to be big, big, big money. >> ryssdal: big money is at the heart of this story. two years ago, the supreme court changed the landscape of campaign finance with a controversial decision in a case called citizens united. it let corporations and unions spend unlimited amounts of money in campaigns. but to avoid corruption, the court said the money can't go directly to candidates. it has to go to independent outside groups. the key word here being independent. one supporter of citizens united is tester's opponent. >> see y'all later. >> ryssdal: six-term republican congressman denny rehberg. >> you dropped it. train come through, you're dead. if you believe in the first amendment, which is free speech, then you better believe in political fre

not proposed cutting contrary to what jon said. and meaning they would follow eligible children to any district or charter school or enable them to enroll in a tutoring program or take courses on line. this step would do three things immediately. first, it would render irrelevant a host of existing regulations on the use of title one funds in particular that burden school district in various ways and constrain innovation and make their lives more difficult and drive up administrative costs. secondly it would put the federal government behind principles that public education funding should be used to empower students, not to empower sluggish and change resistant bureaucracy. and if you eliminate a practical obstacle to creating waited student funding systems with a lot of people are trying to do at the state and local level in that obstacle is the lack of affordability of federal funds, the grants that would be available under affordability program proposals are relatively small. this is not something that would immediately generate large vouchers for all of 4 kids in america. it would accomplis

on the discussion about presidential leadership styles. jon huntsman used bill clinton's democratic convention speech as an example of what mitt romney should do during the first debate for mitt romney tonight. we will also hear from bill kristol and bart gordon. >> i am darrell west. i would like to welcome you to today's events on campaign of leadership. we are what testing today's events, so we would like to welcome those of you better watching through the internet. we also have c-span with us today. we will be live tweeting the event. vileader. during the question and answer time, we will take questions from the live audience, as well as the virtual audience. the question about leadership has been a big part of the 2012 election. this offers wind -- insight into leadership style and approach to management. the question is, how does the presidential campaign shed light on the leadership qualities. what does the campaign experience, as we have seen it so far indicate their approach to management and governance? today we have assembled an outstanding panel of speakers to help analyze the ques
night. jon stewart recently. he is going on mtv today. he gave this interview to "rolling stone". he is really trying to mobilize the kids, college kids. and at this late date in the race, if you are still trying to mobilize your base, i think you're in big trouble martha: good point. he has several intier -- interviews on that list going that route. play this from brian williams, one of the broadcast interviews over course the week. get your thoughts on it. let's listen. >> folks in your business were writing me off a year ago saying no way i would win. so, you know these things go in ebbs and flows. the one thing i've tried to always be is just steady in terms of what i believe in, who i'm fighting for and, you know i think that one of the qualities i bring to bear in this campaign is people see what did i say i was going to do in 2008 and what have i delivered and they can have some confidence that the things i say i mean. martha: wonder whose idea was to put them in the corn maze they were sitting in? doug, what do you make of that? >> well i think the president in some way is tr

with your secretary of state, jon husted, do you trust the voting process in ohio? >> oh, absolutely. i think that we're going to see what dennis and i stood up for is the same principles we started this job with and that's to give the voters the right to vote as often as they did in 2008 and with the federal court's ruling, those folks are going to be able to vote early. they are going to be able to vote on the weekend before election day. so what we've stood up for has been accomplished in oand i wout change anything in one way. the secretary is not going to suppress the vote in ohio. we're going to win for barack obama on election day and carry montgomery county to the top of the blue tag and the rest of the state of ohio. there is no way that this secretary of state is going to fool the people of ohio and we intend to win this election. this is just one mild stop along the way for dennis and i. we have done the right thing, we're proud of what we've done, and we appreciate the support we've gotten from the people in ohio. everywhere we've been, people have stood up for us, our frien
discussion about it. i also want to thank my fellow panelists. jon alterman said this morning that we were the all-star team of north africa experts, right? and i appreciate that, i really, really do. it's kind of like being an all-star ping pong player. there's just not that many of us. i also, i appreciate the comments, the 18th of north african experts in that same sort of reference. i think that doctor has to be mr. t. >> so i'm going to do something i think a little unusual for a conference, and what i'd like to do is put out a couple of scenarios or in al simpson as for where north africa might be hitting. i don't intend the sinners to be exhaustive but i don't intended to be definitive. instead i hope they are speculative and assert help their are provocative and they can serve as fuel for discussion. before we do that though, it's important established a base case. where do we think these countries in north africa are. and then from there we can project down were so we think they might be going. what are their trajectory. lastly i would like to propose some alternate trajectory but

"the daily show's" jon stewart still getting a couple chuckles from the vice presidential debate and that's no malarkey. >> with all due respect that's a bunch of malarkey. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of milalarkemalarkey. that's such a weird combination of gangster and old-timy irish colloquialism, like good fellas meets "the quiet man." hey, now, with all due respect, that's a bunch of milalarkemala. >> that wraps up things for me. i'll see you back here tomorrow at 11:00 eastern joining the show tomorrow, journalist carole simpson who moderated a town hall style debate in 1992, first one, megan mccain, ron reagan win join us and "washington post" glen kessler fact checking with tonight's debatep.

similar. jon stewart did a fabulous job of contrasting them, saying their policies are the same, just choose what color you want. you look at the two candidates, there were a lot of similarities. here you have these critical swing states and it's all going to come down really to the ground game in both places. it's a question of really likability. who do we trust more, because right now, what you see in the polls is on the economy, the american people are saying both candidates as almost equally trustworthy in terms of who can move the economy. so it comes down to in the end, what do those key swing states think. on the women's issues, i will say they're not women's issues. they are men and family issues as well. because reproductive justice and opportunities for access to health care, access to birth control, just as much affects men as it does women. >> quite right. >> they don't affect men the same way. men can't get pregnant. this is a fundamental difference. come on. come on. and if a man were to get raped, pregnancy is not a possibility. so let's be careful -- >> there were thre
coral in just the past 27 years. earlier today, jon gunn said man's impact on the reef is easily traceable. >> we have in the corals a wonderful library of what we've done to the great barrier reef. there's some corals that live for many thousands of years and we found through some of the sites we do we can drill holes in the center of these corals and look at annual growth rings and look at when captain cook came to australia and when the first agriculture in australia happened. we saw a change in the type of chemistry that these annual growth rings in coral were depositing. we've seen a chronoloronhronolo coral record. as we've seen it grow we've seen these major stresses happen as well. in particular in the last 27 years we've seen this very sad decline in the coral recovery rate. >> joining us cnn meteorologist. chad explain to us if anything can to be done when you look at the coral and it's disappearing. >> two cyclones, category 5 storms. can't do anything about that. that's natural. that will recover. we have these crown of thorns star fish that he was talking about and t
super pac money and finally win against jon stewart after years of losing? here is my question. obviously, it will take time to change when things are so polarized. but with the new technology of the nets, where everybody has access, they can generally addressed this as an offsetting factor. is certainly does not need more money. we know that. but if i can do whatever i want with as many people as i can reach -- that is different again, and i like to quote from jefferson. it does make it different. ben franklin or somebody had to set that into print. now you really have an on limited ability to reach as many people who will read it. -- it really does have an unlimited ability to reach as many people who will read. >> the net is different from the newspaper. on the net, in infinite number of people could read your blog post. the difference is no one will come to your blog post unless you put money behind it. there are similar barriers. you could do of viral thing and it could take off. but the candidate, you're printing press is now has valuable as the future printing press beca
